  • Staff Report 

Girls on the Run of Greater Rochester announced its upcoming 5K event set for June 1st at the MCC Brighton Campus. The event marks the culmination of a ten-week program that combines physical activity with life skills development for girls in 3rd to 8th grades.


The program emphasizes confidence building, the creation of peer connections, and community service, all while preparing participants for the 5K run. This celebratory event brings together girls who have participated in the program to showcase their growth and achievements.

The success of the event relies heavily on community support, with a need for 100 volunteers. Last year’s event attracted over 2,000 attendees, including participants, their families, and community members. Proceeds from the 5K will benefit Girls on the Run of Greater Rochester.
